The Alimentarium is a museum about all aspects of food as consumption. Simple but convincing exhibits about packaging, changing consumption patterns, food production. One hour workshops in a fully equipped kitchen under the guidance of a real chef. Children until 12 are welcome in the Junior space; starting at 9 kids can participate in adult workshops. Museum entry for free... More

A giant stainless steel fork is stuck in the lake. Just behind is the Museum. If you have the Swiss Rail Pass, there's no entrance fee and it's worth a quick look. We had lunch outside on the picnic tables and just sit by the lake and enjoyed the view of the fork with the Swiss alps behind it.

We went here in January 2014 and were very disappointed. You are charged for entrance into what is really a promotion for Nestle products and a very poor one at that. Very boring museum with very little in it and terrible effort on the part of Nestle! At the very least you would think you would get a few Nestle... More

The museum was a positive experience, with things to do for both children and adults. The interactive part, where you for example could taste and smell different things, was really nice. And the more educational parts of the exhibition were also interesting and well made.

An interesting visit, interactive, you have the possibilities to make some small test,( like smelling perfumes and guess what smell it is ) some of the special exhibitions are very interesting,but the whole could be more original and surprising...

The education on the benefits of eating well and sticking to the food pyramid are good. It is really geared for children. Some history of food is included. Cafe is open for only an hour and a half--disappointing.

First impressions are so important, and yet the reception at this museum leaves a bad memory as you enter the museum. Employees who can barely take the time to greet you, and who give the impression that they are not happy, and come across as rude. The museum itself is well thought out and our 7 year old son enjoyed... More

A giant stainless steel fork is stuck in the lake. You've probably seen photos. Plastic chairs are amusingly placed among the boulders at the lake's shore. Just behind is the Museum. If you have the Swiss Rail Pass, there's no entrance fee and it's worth a quick look. You will most certainly find something of interest even if it's just... More

The garden as you enter the museum is fantastic. Many plants all labelled. Tis year the theme was plants in paintings and so next to some of the plants were pairings of the plant or the vegetable it produced. Inside the presentations were in different rooms relating to the growing, the processing, the cooking and the presentation of food over... More
